“It’s a nice little haven” said my friend, describing the new lounge nestling airside in the middle of Terminal 3 at Heathrow.
No 1 Traveller is the location, an independently run lounge for travellers without access to one of the many airline dedicated lounges. It opened in mid-August and I got to check it out en route to the Far East for the family holiday.
The cost of getting into No 1 is cutely balanced between keeping out the riff raff and ensuring those who do get in don’t hoover up every goody in sight.
The best bits are: 1, the suspended wicker chairs (kids love these, big kids too as AB publisher Mark Pilling demonstrates below); 2, it knocks spots off the Servisair lounge just up the corridor (c’mon Servisair time for a refurb).
